(By Pastor Loh Seng Piow)

Joy is a long-time student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, she is a talented girl in arts, and has painted many fabulous Buddha statues for Rinpoche in Tsem Ladrang. Sometime last year, Rinpoche warned Joy that she would have a serious car accident, and wanted her to stay around so that she would be protected. True enough, Joy had a car accident a few days ago, her car lost control and spun twice before slamming hard on the ditch, landing on the driver side where the window was smashed…but somehow Joy escaped with just some bruises on her arm!!! Read on…

A tragic accident that could have taken my life…

This was just 4 days ago as I was driving up to KFR… my car lost control on the highway, turned 360 degree twice and I slammed in to a huge ditch. So what was going through my mind as I spun around twice… I knew I was going to be hit and everything was going way too fast, so I just closed my eyes and thought of Tsem Rinpoche, my Guru (and Protector as one).

I opened my eyes and realised that my window was completely smashed… and my head was cushioned by my laptop bag!! This is no ordinary laptop bag as Rinpoche just 2 nights ago gifted me with a new laptop (no the laptop was not in the bag). So how on earth did this bag so coincidentally flew, so accurately from the back of my car seat to the front to protect my head from being smashed? I basically climbed out with a few minor scratches on my right arm. That was it!

What would have happened if I had no Dharma… No Rinpoche? No new laptop with bags? How did Rinpoche know??? How did Rinpoche prepared me? I do not know, but I do know for sure… this is the 3rd time my Lama has saved my life from a tragic car accident. They say just from one’s faith in the Guru, one will be protected and gain tremendous blessings and attainments as He is kinder even more then the Buddhas of the past. He is the living Buddha for you… and now I can swear this is TRUE based not just on my “faith” but for the many times I’ve cheated death recently.

With folded hands and humbly grateful to Rinpoche… for if not I will not live to tell this tale today. May I never be separated from my Lama in this life and in all future lives and to always continuously serve my Lama and the Dharma whole heartedly for everything else is but impermanent like a dream, a mirage, samsara swallows you whole…

Joy

 


 

(贴文:罗胜彪)

甘宝爱是尊贵的詹仁波切的资深弟子,她在美术方面特有才华,也替仁波切在詹拉章彩绘了多尊精致庄严的佛像。在去年的某一天,仁波切告诫宝爱她会经历一场危险 的交通意外,并指示她跟随在侧以给予她加持庇佑。果然不出所料,几天前宝爱出了交通意外。在撞向沟渠之前,她开的车子失控并旋转了两圈。整辆车子往司机座 的方向翻,车镜也跟着碎了。然而,宝爱成功逃脱,身体也无大碍,只是擦伤了手肘。请继续阅读:

Joy是尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的弟子。前几天她开车在通往文冬的高速公路上飞驰时,车子突然失控,在空中翻了两圈,然后重重的摔在沟渠里,而且是摔在了司机那一边,车窗玻璃也碎了,但奇迹的是,除了手上的一点小割伤外,Joy居然安然无恙!

在去年里,仁波切已经警告过Joy,说她会遇到车祸劫难,要她一定得留在仁波切身边以受到仁波切和护法的保佑。在车祸发生的前几天,仁波切送给了Joy一台崭新笔记本,附带笔记本包。当车祸发生时,车在空中翻转的一刹那,放在车后座的笔记本包(里头没有笔记本)竟然准确的“飞”到了Joy的头右边,在撞击 的那一刻垫住了她的头,救了她一命 !!!如果没有仁波切和护法的保佑,Joy恐怕已经凶多吉少了!

一场几乎夺走我性命的可怕车祸

四天前在我开车到克切拉禅修林的路上,我的车子在高速大道上失控,并360度地转了两个圈,接着我便撞向大沟渠。当车子失控旋转的时候,我心想自己一定会给撞上,一切都发生在几秒内。于是我闭上双眼,想着我的上师詹仁波切及护法神是一体的。

当 我睁开双眼时,我发现我的车镜全碎了,而我的手提电脑包竟然垫住了我的头部!这不是个一般的手提电脑包,因为仁波切刚在两天前送了我一台全新的手提电脑 (发生车祸时手提电脑包内是空的)。那么这个手提电脑包究竟是如何那么刚好地“飞”起来,并准确地从车子后座移向前座,保护我的头部免受撞击。我自己从车 子内爬出来,右手肘也只有一些小擦伤,就只是这样!

如 果我没遇见佛法,当时会发生什么事呢?没有仁波切,没有新的手提电脑及手提电脑包,我又会如何呢?仁波切是怎么知道的?仁波切如何为我做准备?我不知道, 我当然不晓得。这已经是仁波切将我从可怕的交通意外中解救出来第三次了。人们都说只要对上师怀有信念,我们都会受到庇佑及获得无量的加持及修行成就,因为 上师比过去佛还要仁慈。上师是你活生生的菩萨。我可以发誓这一切都是真实的,这一切并不只是建立在我的“信念“之上,而是建立于多次的死里逃生。

我双掌合十并虔敬地向仁波切致谢。若不是仁波切,我就无法存活下来,告诉大家这个奇迹。愿我生生世世都能亲近我的上师,一直侍候他并全心全意地为佛法奉献。其他一切事物就好比梦境及海市蜃楼般无常……娑婆世界能完全吞噬你。

甘宝爱

    Thank you, Joy for sharing this incident with us, and by doing so, show us that the tremendous power of faith and trust in the Guru. Just by looking at the photos of the wrecked car sent a chill down my spine. Many people suffer much more from an accident like this than just scratches here and there. I am glad that Joy came out with minor scratches and that she was ok. May she always be the light to others to increase the faith in our Guru.

  2. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 31, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow and Joy for the sharing.

    So touched by Joy’s Pure Guru Samaya and Guru Devotion. May we have the merits as Joy has.

    i am so happy aunty joy is ok. thank you Rinpoche for giving her advise and the dharma which saved her life. wow, thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  7. So Kin Hoe on Mar 18, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for protecting Joy and protecting everyone of us. We are very lucky to have our Rinpoche around us and we must spread the Dharma to let more people to follow our Guru’s teaching and purify the bad karma.

  8. Sharon on Mar 8, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Hi, Joy! Thanks for sharing your amazing story. Am a great believer of everything happens for a reason. Just like how you got laptop as a gift from Rinpoche. It was meant more than just for work.:) Glad that you are alive to share your story here.

  9. Pastor Chia on Mar 7, 2013 at 1:30 am

    I can totally believe regard what hapening Joy has experience the car accident. It happen to me before few years ago. Rinpoche has warned me to be careful about car accidentmany time. I experienced 5 time car accident during that particular year. Without protection from Rinpoche and protector blessing. I won’t be here today. It ready important we must listen Rinpoche advice to do something to purify our negative karma before it manifest.

  10. Cliff on Mar 5, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I’m so glad Joy is safe. Rinpoche has always been there for us and protected us. It is wonderful to know that in the midst of joy’s accident she was thinking of Rinpoche and the protector as one before the car landed on the driver’s side, most people would have selfishly thought of themselves, their lives coming to an end and that they would depart from their worldly possessions, but Rinpoche has given us the dharma and have prepared us not just physically but mentally as well. If not for Rinpoche we would be living very different lives. Thank you for sharing your experience and I’m glad you’re safe.

  11. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    It is amazing for me to learn that Joy can escape car accident of this magnitude with only few scratches on her hand. I am glad that Joy is fine.

    Rinpoche has warned Joy about this upcoming accident last year and again gave her a laptop bag just 2 days before the accident. Rinpoche knows that something is coming, yet maybe He needs to let it happens anyway because this is our karma.

    Thank you Joy for sharing this true account of yourself so that we can all learn the importance of heading guru’s advise.

  12. HelenaC on Mar 4, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    OMB OMB!!!!! It is really a miracle!!! It is so amazing that the accident caused no harm to Joy!!! And the most amazing is Rinpoche knows 🙂 We must do more Dharma work to accumulate more merits to ourselves so that we will always be protected by our Guru and protector. Thank Rinpoche and Protector for saving Joy’s life!!

  13. Adrian Cho on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Thank you JOy for sharing this interesting story, that we can knows it Rinpoche is always be there to protect us all the times.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  14. sweekeong on Mar 4, 2013 at 4:24 am

    Dear Joy, you could really get seriously hurt the way your car hit the drain. Thank you for sharing what you have experience, your thoughts, and your feelings during the accident. Never leave your live to chances but have faith in our guru to help us in our time of need. You have follow the instructions given well and thus are protected from serious injury.

  15. June Tang(KHJB) on Mar 3, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    I am glad that Joy is safe from the car accident.Joy is really really lucky to have blessing of Rinpoche and Protector to helped her through this critical moments !!By having good devotion with our GURU,miracle can be happen !!Joy is a good example to show us how a Guru’s blessings work if we have fully faith in our Guru !!

    It’s very lucky that Joy is totally fine and still standing perfectly next to us today, a lot of people who went thru this kind of car accident might not that lucky like Joy.

    This road is not a small road that not much car will pass by, Joy’s accident point it’s located in the middle of a highway that connected KL to Kuantan (2 major city of Selangor and Pahang), thousand of car will passed by this road with high speed. If there’s a car coming from the back when Joy’s car is spinning, the result will be worst.

    Accident could be a type of purification or maybe a sign of our bad karma catching up. No one can stop our bad karma catching up, not even Buddha himself, so how Rinpoche help in this situation?

    When one is serving the dharma, taking refuge under a guru and the three jewels, we are in the process of purified our bad karma and generate more merits to open up more good karma. Based on the merits that collected from Joy’s work this few years, she is safe now. Based on the merits Joy collected, she is able to have a guru who give her advise before bad thing happened on her, based on the merits she collected, she just have minor hurt in this serious accident. Also because of her merits, Joy able to purified her bad karma which could took away her life.

    Rinpoche have gave us a lot of advise we should contribute to dharma in whatever way we can, it’s not bacause Rinpoche will get anything from us but we will be able to help ourselves when it’s needed.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the blessing and we could have joy still with us today.

    Thanks
    Bryan

  18. grace (KHJB) on Mar 1, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Look at the car situation, people will think that the driver may have vital injury,it is really incredible that Joy only have few minor scratches. with good samaya with Rinpoche, Joy have create a good karma and merits to able receive Rinpoche’s protection..i agree with Sharon comment “we must constantly work on purifying our negative karma, accumulating merits and most importantly, to keep good samaya with our Guru. “

  19. Lisa Leong on Mar 1, 2013 at 11:29 am

    This story or miracle reminded myself again to keep good samaya with my Guru…constantly do our practice or dharma work sincerely to accumalate good merits and at the same time purify our bad karma.

  20. uncle eddie on Feb 28, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    As stressed, without pure Dharma practice and realisations, we have no real spiritual protection from danger, harm and sufferings. Therefore, we definetly need to develop an unchangeable wish to practice Dharma purely. By practising Dharma enthusiastically, it makes our Dharma strong, powerful, constant and pure, which will also pleases our Guru too, and thus strenghten and increase our guru devotion! All such spiritual practices could have led Joy out of serious harms and injuries in that terrible and weird accident of hers with just a few minor scratches. Congrats to you Joy, please keep up the good practice! Thank you Rinpoche for all the usual great care and compassion you have for your students, friends and all living beings, especially animals too!

  21. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for always being around us to love, care and protect us! Rinpoche always does so much for us, regardless of whether we know it or not. I personally received so many gifts from Rinpoche. Rinpoche always shows care towards anyone, even those who have not shown any form of gratitude. Rinpoche’s compassion is indeed superhuman in nature.

    Joy is a great example of Rinpoche’s care and how a samaya held with constant care and awareness can save one’s life. The accident was going to happen because of previous negative karmas but it lessened the suffering caused thanks to Rinpoche and Setrap.

  22. AdelineTan on Feb 27, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    What Joy said is very true.What would have happened if she had no dharma and no Rinpoche? A tragic accident liked that would have taken her life. Because Joy has painted a lot of Rinopoche’s buddhas statues and followed the instructions of Rinpoche,she has collected a lot of merits and managed to escape serious injuries and stay alive, so Joy wishes never to be separated from her Lama in this life and her all her future lives, a wise decision she has made.

  23. Leann Lim on Feb 26, 2013 at 3:04 pm

    看到这车祸毁坏的程度,真是不敢相信,JOY只是手臂擦伤而已~~只能说这是奇迹,在师父和护法保护下的奇迹!! 对上师和护法坚定的信念,不只让我们得到生命的保护,更让我们可以继续修行佛法,让生命更有意义…常听说修佛法,就是修让我们面对死亡的那一刻; 因为生命无常,随时在下一秒,我们就这样离开人世不是没可能的事…在没有佛法的‘支持’和理解下,如果那一刻突然来临时,真的无法想像自己该怎么办!!但持续的修持,对上师和护法坚定的信念,即时在危机的时刻,只是单单臆念上师的样貌,就可助我们脱险!!

  24. Davin on Feb 26, 2013 at 1:07 am

    Glad that Joy is safe. It’s a miracle that she escaped with only a few bruises. Her strong guru devotion, practise the Dharma and faith in the Dharma protector have save her live. This is why we must constantly doing Dharma work, accumulating merits, purifying our negative karma and most importantly, to keep good samaya with our Guru.

  25. Angelshooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    Thanks to Seng Piow for the posting.

    First thing, when I saw in the FB, I thought of Joy, and Is she safe? I am glad that she is fine and with a few cuts and little bruises.

    Yes, without Rinpoche and Protector’s blessing and protection, Joy might have injured badly or died. Joy is very fortunate to meet and receive Rinpoche’s blessing. Take care Joy!

  26. Darren Kechara on Feb 25, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche & protecter! Any Rinpoche’s gift, be it presents or words of advice is very important. With strong faith in Dharma definitely everyone will get blessed and protected.

  27. Soon Huat on Feb 25, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    Yes, we should trust our Guru and Protector. Their thought is beyond our understanding. We just believe and do what has been asked by Rinpoche and follow it with heart. We will realize the purpose one day and appreciate the guidance from Rinpoche.

  28. pavara on Feb 25, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Wow!!!!!
    It is so miraculous that Rinpoche gave Joy the computer bag to save her from the car accident.

    Rinpoche must have known that Joy was going to have a car accident so Rinpoche gave Joy the computer bag to save her life. Another thing is that how did the computer bag fly from the back seat to the steering wheel? That is another sign to show that the protector is there.

    After the incident when Joy was taken to the Bentong hospital everything happened so smoothly and there was no troubles or obstacle in Bentong. She is also lucky because there was no serious injuries or broken bones.

    This clearly shows that if we have faith in our protector and our Guru, things can go on smoothly and well. If Joy had no guru or protector she would have already died from the accident.

    This incidence tells us that our Guru always cares for us to make sure everything is alright. Thus we should have strong faith in our Guru and protector.

  29. Carmen K. on Feb 25, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Thank you for having this post up.

    I personally ‘experienced’ this case. I do vividly remember Rinpoche warning Joy of a serious car accident that she would be facing sometime last year, and that she had to do Dharma work and watch her body, speech and mind to lessen the impact of this obstacle.

    When I heard that Joy got into a car accident recently, I was startled. Seeing the photo shows how serious the car accident was..In any case, most would’ve walked away from the accident as bad as hers with much more than cuts and bruises on the arm. What was ironic was that Rinpoche gave Joy a laptop bag 2-3 days before her accident. Out of the blue! Rinpoche could’ve given Joy anything, like a soft toy, or statue, or mala, or cards, or artwork, but it was a laptop bag that was chosen…and it was this exact laptop bag that mysteriously cushioned her during her serious accident… How… miraculous.

    I’m glad Joy lived to tell this tale, and may it too inspire others to have faith and trust in one’s guru. This is a true case of following the advice of your guru and reaping the benefits from it. The guru will do all he can to protect, bless, lessen and save you from all obstacles that you have created for yourself. May Joy also continuously learn, practise and listen to Rinpoche, so that she will be able to practise, learn and spread the Dharma for a long time to come.

  30. Wah Ying on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    天,看到车子毁坏的状况,一定以为司机会凶多吉少……结果,她被护法和上师救了!

    信念很重要,对上师和护法坚定的信任,让宝爱脱险。忆念上师一刻胜过持诵千万遍的佛咒……顶礼上师詹仁波切……

    人生有奇迹,看看这个诡异的红脸异域和当事人在危急时刻忆念上师,然后脱险的故事:

    How extremely fortunate to have survived from a fatal accident. GOSH!! Without protection of your guru you probably would be severely injured or even died. Never lose your guru devotion to your perfect guru. May all students have the perfect guru devotion befitting their teachers. x

  32. edward ooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:28 am

    Joyce was so lucky that she survived the car crash. She is so fortunate to meet Rinpoche, if she never met Rinpoche she might not be alive today. Amazingly! her empty bag for her laptop is a gift from Rinpoche became like magic, it flew to her head to protect her and after the car crash, she only have a few bruises on her hand. But most of all, I hope that is fine

  33. JP on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:14 am

    Joy,

    I was so relieved that you survived this accident. When I went on site to see your car, I thought you’d be seriously injured. I truly believe that it was Rinpoche’s blessings that saved your life and lessened the injury.

    I’m glad that you’re alive to relate this story to others. May this be an inspiration to others.

    Love,
    JP

  34. Louise Lee on Feb 24, 2013 at 11:45 pm

    生命来临, 每个人都回欢喜的等待与迎接。

    但是。。。。。。万一。。。。。。一天我们要离开。。。。。。你准备好了吗?

    真的会有时间准备吗? 仁波切说的对! 不要再等了, 现在就为佛法下一番苦功!虽然会是苦的, 但是看看将来,这是一份功德! 我们将会为将来, 来到克切拉的每一位带来欢喜与幸福!

  35. Low ksjb on Feb 24, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    We are glad that you are safe from that accident.Due to your sincere guru devotion,you manage to escape the accident with minimal injury.We could not escape from our past negative karma,but at least when it ripen,our dear Rinpoche could minimize the affect when we truly place our trust in him.Thank you Rinpoche for the love and caring for your students and for those in need.

  36. Chee ks on Feb 24, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Just to share my own experience with U all,
    my family n I join kechara in 2009 march. We are very fortunate to met Rinpoche in the same month where Rinpoche give us a teaching about oracle and setrap protector practice.
    Through this teaching, I had faith with Setrap(that time I still don’t know to visualize guru n protector in one)
    After few months( even I n my wife just do some helping in wesak fair, NOT CLOSE TO RINPOCHE TO DO FULL TIME DHARMA WORK), my mother safe from a gas explosion(nearly explore).
    我很惊讶煤气头已经燒熔了,竟然没爆炸。我萬分深信这是上師,護法的護佑。

    Chee ks

  37. yenpin on Feb 24, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    仁波切一直在我们身边,保护,关心和爱护我们
    能想象一下,如果在这场车祸中,没有上师的保护和护法加持。会如此幸运吗?
    要好好感谢上师,护法的加持,逃过一劫。

  38. Girlie OOI on Feb 24, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    When I heard that Joy had an accident and then saw the picture of her car in the ditch, the first thought that came to my mind was .. Is she ok? That looks bad!

    Joy had landed in a ditch before and she also escaped unhurt.

    Thank Buddha Joy escaped unscathed. A few scratches is nothing.

  39. Lucas Roth on Feb 24, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Rinpoche is a living Buddha and i love him, i am sure all of kechara loves him too. He is very good for us but we must be good to him, he is truly a blessing and overall a good man. we have to appreciate him while he is here. Please live long Rinpoche, so you can teach us the dharma and spread it so it will last to the end of samsara.

  40. auchan on Feb 24, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    anumodana..i really touched and happy for you to be alive and Dharma protect you..sadhu3

  41. Andrew Boon on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    This is quite an incredible account… it is almost surreal seeing Joy after the accident after getting the horrific updates via whatsapp of the pictures of her car in the ditch. It somehow did not “match” but I was happy she escaped with just very minor scratches.

    What we can certainly learn from Joy is the devotion she has for Rinpoche which undoubtedly keeps her safe.

    We have to understand Rinpoche does not work on a whim or fancy, Rinpoche works on our karma and merits with him… Hence as students our samaya has to be clean and that we follow Rinpoche’s intructions to a tee for us to be “protected”.

    One may ask, why is it that some students seemingly receive more? It is most certainly their merits and connection with Rinpoche from this and a previous life. However this is like money in a bank account, we cannot just bank on this alone… the merits need to be replenished or we may end up quite the opposite and our karma would inevitable pull us away from Rinpoche. Like I mentioned earlier, it certainly is not what Rinpoche would like but if we do not have the karma for Rinpoche to help us, we are left to our negative karma ripening.

    How we replenish this merit account is to do Dharma work well and follow Rinpoche’s advice however mundane our deluded minds seems to think it is. There is nothing Rinpoche does without a reason!

  42. Jessica Yap on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    OH MY!!! Thank Buddha you’re okay Joy! The accident looks scary. Luckily you were not tossed outta the car. And you’re also lucky to have Rinpoche and Protector to help you through this accident. You’re blessed in a way! Can you imagine if you were to get involved in an accident without the Guru and the Protector? I shudder at the thought of it! Thank Buddha you’re okay now! A few scratches in return for a life is okay. hehe
    Hope you’re keeping well, JoyJoy!

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  43. Albert Ratchaga on Feb 24, 2013 at 3:23 am

    Is this coincident? or is this the power of blessing? This is definitely a debatable topic as we never saw how an enlightened being blessed us, but what if this ‘coincident’ happen to a person few times and also happened to other people many times, is this coincident still or there is something behind that we need to realize?

    The assistant who are around Tsem Rinpoche saw this miracle happened many times, this is due to Rinpoche’s extreme care and kindness. Rinpoche cared for everyone no matter who you are.

    Joy is definitely very fortunate, because from Rinpoche and protector’s blessing, Joy got her life saved and just only a minor accident. I’m glad that Joy made it, it is a chance for us to continue into Dharma practice.

  44. Felix Kong on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:22 am

    How fortunate that Joy have protection from Rinpoche and protector , so she can escape from any injured or death in this accident.I’m believe too that Joy had been done a lot of good things and collect good karma , that why can easily passed this accident.

  45. Erickksiow on Feb 24, 2013 at 1:25 am

    Glad to know that Joy is fine, and Thank You Rinpoche for always caring everyone of us.

    Best Regards: Eric kksiow

  46. Lim Han Nee on Feb 23, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    Her car lost control and she slammed into a ditch. She closed her eyes and placed all her faith and her prayers in Rinpoche and the Protector.

    Next minute when she opened her eyes, she found that the window next to her had been completely smashed. Yet she was being cushioned by a laptop bag! No ordinary bag! It was the bag that held the laptop which Rinpoche had gifted her just two nights ago!

    Joy’s experience of what could have been a fatal accident for her, proves yet again how important it is that one has Guru Devotion and clean samaya with one’s guru. Nothing is more important than Dharma practice and doing Dharma work.

    I saw Joy yesterday in KFR and I was amazed that she had only minor scratches on her right hand. As if the accident didnt happen. Since I knew her, this is the second time I hear of her being in an accident. The first time was somewhere near Damansara. How truly blessed and protected you are Joy! You are right! We should always cherish, trust and surrender to our Guru as He knows best unlike us. As always, Rinpoche only want the best for us so that we can surrender and go all the way for Dharma and not take things lightly. Yours is one of the perfect example. You went all the way and received much blessings. And yes again, may we never be separated from the perfect Guru in all lives and always receive His unconditional love shown in many many ways! Am glad you are okay Joy!

  48. Ong Moh Mei on Feb 23, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    I rejoice that Joy is still with us today. Our Guru’s compassion and care knows no bound. He is always looking after us and protecting us whether we know it or not. Joy has great merit to be able to think of Rinpoche (and Protector) when the accident was happening.

  49. jennifer on Feb 23, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    There are so many many miracles that Rinpoche has performed over the years and each and every miracle is truly amazing !
    Reading the post on Joy’s accident and how she came out unscathed is totally miraculous !!!
    I do not believe in coincidences , but i believe very strongly in Faith and Trust, which is what Joy has . Joy’s deep faith and trust in Rinpoche has saved her.
    When we have the karma and merits to practise the Dharma and we have full faith and trust in our Guru and our Protectors, we will be saved at ALL levels ! In this lifetime and in our future lives.
    I am so overwhelmed with relief that Joy is fine.
    Thank you so much Rinpoche for always looking out for us, loving us and protecting us . Thank you Rinpoche for saving Joy.

    是的,正如大家说的一样,这已经不是第一次仁波切救了 Joy 的一生,早前的她活在日日笙歌的日子,长久下来也会变成活死人,这并不代表任何病痛,而是生活已无目标了。

    一旦生命失去了目标,失去了目的,我们已经开始死亡了,死亡开始于我们停止进步,停止往前走。仁波切的出现帮助我们前进,给与了我们生命的意义。

    不了解的人会觉得听从上师的话是中迷信,可是我们不也听从大学的讲师、家人、妻子、老板的话?难不成我们个个都是迷信之人吗?如果对我们生命有帮助的何不去试试?做了未必成功,但不做铁定是失败。

    Rinpoche for always be around us to protect, care and love us!Joy,

    We’re so glad you’re okay!!!

  52. Paris on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    I am sitting in front of Joy now and we have even been talking about her wedding a few years ago… it’s almost spooky that I can be sitting in front of her right now and she’s in perfectly good health, with only a slight scar on her arm. Any other accident like that – on a dangerously wet and winding road and with such a light car – would have been an instant death knell for most people. The miracle of her laptop bag cushioning her head seems far too coincidental to be just a coincidence; sometimes, you don’t believe in miracles until you see one right before your eyes.

    I had written privately to Rinpoche about this accident and how miraculous it is that Joy got away with only a few scratches. Rinpoche replied, “For many, being near the lama will open up other good karmas inclusive of protection. It is important to make dharma our priority then the blessings will open up seeds and plant further seeds.”

    I like what Sharon has said – that it doesn’t mean that we become invincible, but we have this opportunity to open up the good karmic imprints for us to remain always on the path and have all the necessary conditions to continue (health, safety, protection, material resources etc). The Lama opens up his whole life – home, teachings, support – for no one but us. For what he gives out to his students and for the incredible lifetime of protection, he gets back very, very little from us.

  53. patsy on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Looking at the picture of the overturned car, it’s a miracle that Joy escaped with only a few bruises. Joy has been one of Rinpoche’s long time student and her strong guru devotion and trust in the dharma protector has helped her collected the merits to be saved many times by Rinpoche.

    Joy is a good example to show us how a Guru’s blessings work if we have strong guru devotion.

  54. Joy on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    All I can say is please please always listen to Rinpoche’s advice and instructions and follow it to a “T” and never take anything lightly or for granted and make excuses to to fulfill them. Rinpoche has reasons for asking us to do something. It is easier for Rinpoche to help and bless us if we listen without any form of resistance and just completely trust and surrender… surrender means let go of your own projected concepts… in other words your own reasons and excuses. Just follow 100%.

    If you have met and Guru that can teach you the Dharma as directly as Rinpoche, treasure and cherish it with your life. Rinpoche does not need anything from us, but we need Rinpoche very much. Everything that Rinpoche has done for me, my family, Justin and His students and friends is always about how He can help or benefit them. Sometimes Rinpoche think for days to help his students and think of methods to make them wake up or encourage them to improve. EVerything Rinpoche has created and set up for us is ways to collect enormous amounts of merits and from there to understand Dharma. Those who are in Rinpoche’s mandala are so fortunate… it is likened to being a protected meritorious space. Rinpoche have told us many times if you think that you are entering Vajrayogini’s mandala everyday when you come in to work in my house, you will receive the blessing of Vajrayogini. If you think it is just an ordinary place then you will just receive worldly benefits and nothing more. So really it is your perspective, your understanding of Dharma and your merits to stay near or to leave the mandala… it is based on you. So do not take it for granted if you have this great opportunity… never trick and cheat yourself in to going to the lower realms… it is not worth it!

    • abby f on Feb 27, 2013 at 6:32 pm

      Thank you Joy for sharing your own experience about what surrender to Guru means with us. What it takes is just follow the instructions and do it. And because of the faith Joy has with Rinpoche, Joy is OK now and she is able to continue with her Dharma work to help many. Joy has the merits to be saved by Rinpoche and the Protector as she works closely with Rinpoche for many years. Joy uses her talent to help spread Dharma which is very meritorious. We all are glad that Joy is fine.

  55. Jean Ai on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Like Joy said, this is not the first time Rinpoche has saved her from a car accident. But this is also not the first time ever that Rinpoche has saved her – over a decade ago, when Rinpoche first met Joy and her late husband Justin, Rinpoche also saved them from the hedonistic partying lifestyle they were leading.

    I think what we need to realise is, Rinpoche doesn’t just save us physically in the way of preventing car accidents but also mentally. For all of us, our lives would be very different, and much worse off if we had not met Rinpoche. And understanding how Rinpoche has benefited us should motivate us to work even harder, to help Rinpoche grow in renown so that he can help others too…since at the present we ourselves cannot help others to the extent that Rinpoche can ease others sufferings, that would be the compassionate thing for us to do!

  56. hecelus tan on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    If we see our Guru as a Buddha,then we received the blessing of a Buddha.So I think this is the essence of Vajrayana Buddhism.Like Joy,she can be safe from this seriously accident is all because of pure Guru Devotion.We should never ever have any doubt on our spiritual teacher because this may blocked the blessing from our Guru.Joy really is a good example that showed us how Guru’s blessing works.

  57. sarahyap on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    It truly was a strange day when the accident happened.

    All of us was already up on KFR and we felt uncomfortable that Joy have not arrived in KFR already. So David gave her a call to see if she is ok. Later I found out that David called her just moments after her accident, that she could not reach her phone as it flew out of the car. It was only a few minutes later after she crawled out of the car that she got hold of her phone and returned David’s call, and told us she had an accident. Immediately Li Kim mobilized 3 people to go down to Genting Sempah to help Joy.

    When Joy returned to KFR after going to the hospital, (they did an X-ray just to make sure everything is ok) I asked Joy what happened. She told me that she was going down the slope and suddenly her car lost control. She knew she could not get her car in control at that moment, so she closed her eyes and think of her Guru and protector… The next thing she knew, she opened her eyes and found that the computer bag that Rinpoche gave her a few days ago protected her head. If you see the picture, the glass was shattered to pieces… how the computer bag ended up right next to Joy’s head, protecting her… now that’s amazing.

    This is not the first time Joy had a major accident, and coming out of the accident with just scratches here and there. There was another major accident when she drove down a large drain and her car stopped just inches away from the concrete wall…

    Joy is one of Rinpoche’s oldest students… she has been very close with Rinpoche for many years. If there was one person that she love and trust it is Rinpoche, without a doubt. Most of Rinpoche’s Buddha statues are painted by Joy and even the beads are done by her. To have such a tremendous merit to be close and serve one’s Guru, and at the same time to have such strong Guru devotion to one’s Guru… I believe it is from all her actions of following Rinpoche’s advice to her, which ultimately saved her life so that she can continue to do Dharma.

  58. philyong on Feb 23, 2013 at 11:43 am

    This accident not only shows that Joy is safe and there are miracles..it also shows that Joy has transformed. She did not let her attachments take over hence she is safe as she walked out of that car with just a few scratch marks. There are Protectors or Guardian Angels or however you want to call them. These Protectors are always watching over us. But like Rinpoche always says, if we do not have the karma, no matter how much our Protector or Guru tries to help us, it will not work. Not that, they do not have the capability but because we do not have the karma to receive help.

    Luckily for us, however we want our karma to be is entirely up to us. Basically, we choose our path. Good or bad karma, its all in our hands. I am glad Joy chose the good path that has ensured that she is safe always under the protection of Rinpoche and her Protector. Thank you Joy for also showing a good example to all of us.

    • henry ooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 4:25 pm

      Yes, Phil, Rinpoche has taught this over and over again.

      It really was a miracle after I saw only light cuts and bruises on Joy’s arms, hands and legs.

      Our life can be so fragile and can be snuffed out in an instant.

  59. Sharon Saw on Feb 23, 2013 at 11:07 am

    I must say that when i first saw the car in the ditch, i was quite shaken because it would have been a miracle for someone to walk away from it but Joy did! As you can see, she just had some bruises and scratches! I had fallen down the week before and i had more injuries than she did! This is truly the result of Joy’s refuge in Rinpoche which gave her the best protection anyone could have.

    On a personal note, there was once when Pastor Susan and I were driving to Singapore and i messaged Rinpoche to let him know that we were leaving KL as was our usual practice, and he said have a good trip and remember to check your tires. He had never told us to check our tires before so Susan and I looked at each other and thought let’s pull into the next petrol station. True enough, our car’s tire pressure was almost dangerously low. So it was lucky that we had the good karma to receive Rinpoche’s advice and that we paid attention to it!

    Of course it does not mean that if you are near Rinpoche and doing Dharma work that you become invincible. It just means that if you have the karma and merits to be safe, Rinpoche will do anything he can to ensure your safety. However, if we do not keep good samaya (relationship) with Rinpoche, then Rinpoche cannot help us. It is not that he does not want to help us but that our negative karma will stop him from helping. This is why we must constantly work on purifying our negative karma, accumulating merits and most importantly, to keep good samaya with our Guru.

  60. Jim Yeh on Feb 23, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Joy,

    We’re so glad you’re okay!!!

  61. David Lai on Feb 23, 2013 at 10:56 am

    This is one of many incredible stories of people who were directly and indirectly assisted by Rinpoche. There’s a whole graphic novel, which is just a handful of the amazing and dramatic ways in which Rinpoche assists people. The blessings of a lama comes particularly if we have merits created to help us.

    Joy had been with Rinpoche for little under a decade now and she had been serving Rinpoche with her art, her dedication, prayers and hard work. She had her shortcomings like everybody else and it is through such powerful experience that it has changed her and she’s slowly but surely able to transform her shortcomings to be of assistance towards others. I rejoice for her that she’s able to help others with her art and Dharma work.

  62. Martin on Feb 23, 2013 at 10:37 am

    Everything about the accident was surreal and it was like, if an accident had to happen to Joy, then by some divine intervention, it happened in the best possible way. It was as if everything was already in place waiting to mitigate the danger and inconvenience of such an accident. But then again, when you are as close to Rinpoche as Joy is, you know that Rinpoche is always looking out for you and often without you knowing about it. Many have been witnesses to these miracles although Rinpoche never personally speaks about them. In Vajrayana, we see the Guru as the Buddha and by that way, the blessings and protection of the Guru is maximised and over time, you begin to realize that it is more than just a visualization.

    Joy spends a lot of her time painting Rinpoche’s statues, adorning them with jewels and precious stones and there is so much merits to be gained through such Dharmic acts. It is a wonder why more people are not queueing to serve the Guru and the Dharma in similar ways and build up a tremendously good karma bank account.

  63. Lim (KH JB) on Feb 23, 2013 at 6:15 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for always be around us to protect, care and love us!

    Joy show us the good example that always hold Guru samaya strongly can always protect us.

    Interesting someone like Rob Lowe a famous actor actually told he came face-to-face with Bigfoot was with his two sons .No proof and details given to support his encounter. Whether for publicity his coming show no one knows. He was filming his new paranormal documentary series when he said he saw it. It does not matter at least it helps to raise awareness of that Bigfoot do exist. Good in way more people will come to accept it and will further investigate its existence of Bigfoot. It also encourages people to start thinking broadly of possibilities.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Well,I have read news of Bigfoot sightings in the jungles of southern Malaysia before years back. Interesting as our country do have the sighting of Bigfoot too.It seems that Bigfoot can be found anywhere in this world. To many people, Bigfoot is the stuff of nightmarish folklore. Described by hundreds of alleged eyewitnesses as an ape-like creature that stands nearly eight feet tall. There is a number of sighting by the locals and may be linked to environmental changes and the shrinking jungle. This has attracted world attention, having teams from different countries and our local government as well. The research scientists, has been trying to verify Bigfoot’s existence so far none has really performed intensive research on this matter. Historical records show eight claimed sightings of enormous apemen or Bigfoot or oversized apes. Despite numerous sightings, photos and footprints , there has never been conclusive proof that these creatures exist in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article.

    Alarming height and shocking to know there is microplastic contamination in our drinking water after scientific investigation has discovered that.
    Glad to know scientists are doing more for research on the implications for health. At least we could know more knowledge and more aware of all plastics fibres in our tap water. All this while we have been drinking . Scientists warn microplastics are so small they could penetrate organs. That is bad for our health. Plastic fibres have infiltrated the drinking water of cities and towns all over the world. Our oceans are littered with plastic, which is killing whales and other marine mammals, and contaminating fish. Previous studies have shown when people eat seafood, they are also eating high levels of microplastics, not to mention taking in a lot of mercury as well
    Many people have involved to make a change for a better environment for the generation to come. Educating the people from school children to the people on the streets the safest ways of garbage disposal will be a wonderful start. We should all take responsibility to care for the environment and help raise awareness.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    In Buddhism, before become an enlightened beings, all living beings have to experience the suffering in taking rebirth for many lifetimes and each of the rebirth, we must have father and mother. It is possible that our previous lifetime’s father and mother have taken rebirth in other forms such as animals, hungry ghosts and etc in this lifetime. Due to this reason, we should love and treat all sentient beings well as everyone might once been our father or mother in the previous life. We owe them kindness and therefore we should practice dharma and help to liberate them from suffering and lead them to enlightenment.

    I am extremely grateful that I meet and learn dharma from Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s skilful means teachings let me understand that I should not only care about myself, my family and friends but to be kind and compassion to everyone around me. Rinpoche reminds and encourage us to do our commitments and daily sadhana. Later, I realized that when we do prayers, sadhana or pujas, we must begin with Taking Refuge in the Three Jewels and followed by recitation of the Four Immeasurables. Through this practice, it is actually to help us to set a good motivation and generate our Bodhicitta for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Wow …such a unique island called Socotra which i did not know before or come across . Everything from trees to flowers looks so unique. A place home to a panoply of strange plants and animals uniquely which adapted to the hot, harsh, windswept island. The landscape of this remote Socotra Island looks as if it comes from a sci-fi film.
    From what I see through the pictures this Socotra Island, looks more like Alien place. It’s truly unlike any place on earth and is also called the ‘Lost World ‘ to some of the tourist. I did some research on this island .
    It seem over millions of years, the isolated island in the Arabian Sea has cultivated a unique biodiversity unlike anywhere else on Earth. Twisted dragon’s blood trees and bulbous bottle trees have made Socotra a place of legends, feared by sailors throughout history and believed by some to be the site of the original Garden of Eden.
    Now it seem to be a tourist attraction in Yemen after when UNESCO named it as World Natural Heritage Site in 2006. Its wonderful news as UNESCO recognizes the importance of preserving the island.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these unique island with us.

    Beautiful sacred painting by Rinpoche. Amazing to know RInpoche as a small kid is so talented in drawing and painting . Yet after so many years the painting still looks good condition. Such a beautiful White Tara painting and now Rinpoche still paints.
    Wow interesting stories behind the scared painting of the powerful white Tara. When we have trust and faith that’s how these powerful Tara will help us.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection. It is not the gift but the thought that counts.
    Rejoice for Mitra Poudel and Khom Thapa

    This is a great news to animals. Gucci, a leading fashion company going to stop fur clothing now. I just watched a video about the people peel off the fox skin. So cruelty.
    Even though we own any fur clothing, we shouldn’t wear it because this will create a desire cause to others to buy more fur clothing .
    Human beings are very intelligent but we shouldn’t take away animals rights to live in this planet.
    Thanks Rinpoche sharing.

    藏传佛教格鲁派第十世班禅喇嘛被视为阿弥陀佛的化身,并且是继达赖尊者后拥有最高权威的佛法大师。第十世班禅喇嘛是一名颇有影响力的大师,每当他给予公开开示时,数以千计的人都会前去听法。
    第十世班禅喇嘛和达赖尊者的关系可以追溯到第五世达赖尊者时期。在当时,第五世达赖尊者的上师,同时也是杜固扎巴坚赞(多杰雄登前世之一)的上师是第四世班禅喇嘛。为了感激上师,达赖尊者赐予上师“班禅大师”头衔,并对班禅大师的三任前世加以追封。此外,达赖尊者也将扎什伦布寺赐为其上师的驻锡地。而此扎什伦布寺内还安设一间供奉多杰雄登的护法殿至今,并且还成为著名的旅游胜地。
    由此可见,如果多杰雄登就如藏人行政中央所说的修持多杰雄登会伤害西藏事业,那么当时的第五世达赖尊者为何要赠送设有多杰雄登的护法殿的扎什伦布寺予第四世班禅喇?如果多杰雄登真的会伤害西藏事业,那么第十世班禅喇嘛为何要费尽心思来撰写这篇约30至40页的的“妙音怙主(宗喀巴)佛教护法天王金刚具力五部威猛尊酬供仪轨”的祈愿文?难道第十世班禅喇嘛铁了心肠不再理会或是存心要危害西藏人民?这一切的一切,让我们不得不深入的思考。

    It is very worrying that there are such high percentage of plastic fibres found in our tap water. Even developed country such as UK, Germany and France has 72% of their tap water contaminated with plastic fibres. I guess this is the price we have to pay. With improve technologies and new science inventions we keep coming out with new products that uses various types of plastics and chemicals to bring down the production cost. But unfortunately, nothing comes free as human who will have to suffer the implication of these plastics fibres in the form of water and air, and it is alarming to our health. I think the only way is to create awareness to people telling them how harmful it can bring to us and we should avoid using the products that contribute the pollution and use alternative.

    It is good news that Tibetan MP Venerable Tenpa Yarphel speaks up against Nechung. Why would a democratic country listen to an oracle to seek advise for the country governance and administration? It just puzzled me. If Nechung is right, why isn’t the country and people progressing but divided further with the Dorje Shugden ban? What more Nechung is an not enlightened dharma protector. It was proven that so many Nechung’s prophecies was wrong but none would question and CTA would still follow the wrong advice. The CTA leaders continue to segregate, discriminate and remove all the human rights against Dorje Shugden practitioners such as education, medical, religion and etc. This is so illegal.

    In this age, we should be able to think and fight for our rights. I hope more people like Venerable Tenpa Yarphel will speak up against the unfair Tibetan leadership towards their people. Everyone should be treated equally and especially for a Buddhism country.

    Shocking to read and hear this, happening in our own country. Even though this post is old , feeling sad for those cats starving been kept at two pet boarding premises which they called pets hotel. Pets owner discovered that those pets were left abandoned and starved . They also found dead cats and many were in a sad condition. Our local newspapers reported that about 200 cats and a dog were rescued from that premise alone .Another location about 100 cats were found and rescued. These episode was highlighted in news national wide. It such a shameful act .How can the owner of the premises do it for their own selfishness just because of celebrations.
    It is good that the authorities took a stern legal action against the owners of the centre.
    Animals are ignorant and do not deserve to be treated so badly. Be kind and caring to all sentient beings. Have empathy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    A beautiful approach by the British MPs has recommended that people reduce the amount of meat they eat to help prevent food shortages in Britain . Even though it is political approach yet still happy as less animals will be killed for foods on the table.
    The massive increase in meat consumption in recent decades has led to the price of grain increase which used for animal feed. Its also lead to widespread deforestation and pressure on agricultural land. The MP are trying to tackle food wastage as half the food bought from UK supermarkets goes in the bin. The UK population are encouraged to eat less meat in long run.
    Thank you for sharing.

    So touching ….watching this beautiful videos , could not controlled my tears too. Its such a warm moment when the two of them met again after a long search nearly 25 years of a hopless search . Mitchell Shigemoto has never forgotten how James Pearson saved his life. In foreign places, and the way Shigemoto’s relationship with James Pearson training together and fighting ,along side in the war ,they became best friends.
    James Pearson is truly a selfless ,kind and friendly person, nor matter what happen stands by Mitchell Shigemoto.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing this inspiring post.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a unique thangka of Pelden Hlamo with Dorje Shugden and Setrap and Nechung. Of course they all get along unlike what Tibetan leadership likes to say they don\'t get along.

I always like my rooms to smell clean, fresh, woodsy and a bit like the forest. my favorite types of essential oils to burn daily or as an offering to the Buddhas are Juniper, Cypress, Black Spruce, Peppermint and sometimes Rosemary.

In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single \'huts\' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year. It is very inspiring to see people practice even under extreme conditions because they realize how samsara is so full of deceptions. Praise to the Dharma that liberates us with truth and practice.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)

    Yen asked: Dear pastor, I am married but have not been blessed with a kid after several years. How can I overcome the pain I am going through? I also like to ask u for guidance to help someone dear to me who have met with an accident and in vegetative state. How do I help the friend suffer less? What can I do to help her overcome this obstacle in life even when doctor seems to have given up hope?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Yen, Thank you for your question. I am very sorry to hear of your situation and that of your friend. One thing we need to remember is that the Buddha explained to us how karma works. Everything we experience in life, whether good or bad is due to our actions previously in this life and previous lifetimes. While this may sound unfair in that we need to experience the results of something that we do not remember doing, this is the way samsara exists. They only way to be free of this type of suffering is to attain enlightenment, the state of a Buddha. That being said, we all need help in our daily life, and that is where deity practice can help us. In order to overcome the pain you are going through, may I suggest that you engage in the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa. You can find an excellent commentary by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html. You can find the prayers to recite here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#19. There is also a practice box set dedicate to Lama Tsongkhapa, which you can order online here if you wish: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/tsongkhapa-boxset-english Lama Tsongkhapa is the emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of wisdom; Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion; and Vajrapani, the Buddha of skilful means. As such the practice is extremely powerful and is well-known to help people heal psychical pain, but more importantly the sufferings felt in the mind. You can concentrate on the recitation of the Mig Tse Ma mantra and beseech Lama Tsongkhapa to help ease your suffering. He will surely help. His practice is known for relieving anxiety and even depression. In regards to your friend, on a practical level you can research about your friend’s specific state and see if there are any treatments available that can be effective if you have not done so already. In any case what you can do is to engage in prayers or pujas and dedicate the merits generated to your friend. For example, you can engage in the practice of Medicine Buddha, available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/medicine-buddha-practice.html, or alternative have Medicine Buddha pujas sponsored here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/medicine-buddha-puja-fund. Medicine Buddha is excellent at healing on all levels, and provide us with soothing and beneficial energy. Another method that you can use to help your friend is to generate as much merit for her as possible. A vast amount of merit and purification of karma can help even the direst of circumstances. Such activities could involve releasing animals from slaughter or deplorable conditions, feeding the homeless and less fortunate and providing for them, and making vast amounts of offerings to the Buddhas and enlightened beings. If done with a good motivation, and dedicated towards your friend, she will benefit from the virtuous actions, even if you cannot see the benefits at the moment. Coupled with this you can engage in the practice of a Dharma protector such as a Dorje Shugden. You can find the prayers here if you wish to engage in them yourself: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden, alternatively you can have Dorje Shugden pujas sponsored here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/dorje-shugden-wishfulfilling-puja-fund. Dharma protectors help to overcome obstacles and conditions that we wish to arise. I understand that it is a difficult situation, but you should maintain your faith in the Buddhas and enlightened beings, and they will definitely help. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Ling asked: I have been practising chakrasamvara for over 2 years now and recently during my meditation I feel that during the deity meditation portion that it feel like my entire body is under a heavy water fall. My heart and limbs also feel like flowing water and there is some crawling sensations. What could this be
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Ling, Thank you for your question. I rejoice to read that you are practising Chakrasamvara for over two years now. This is very good, you should keep the practice steady, keep the vows and commitments well and you will progress on your spiritual evolution. Generally speaking when you engage in higher tantric yoga meditation, the meditations include movement of your psychic winds. Therefore sometimes people will experience strange feelings in the body. When this happens, once should ease off the concentration on that particular visualisation when engaging in the practice. What you can do to lessen these feelings is to engage in purification practices such as the 35 Confessional Buddhas, which you can find here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html. Alternatively if you have the appropriate initiation, you can engage in the practice of Heruka Vajrasattva, which would be included in your sadhana text. Engaging in the purification practices would lessen these sensations when you practice, as everything we experience is due to our karma. What I would advise the most, however, is to consult the guru that gave you the empowerment of Chakrasamvara practice. Your guru would be able to better advise you in addition to the above, the methods you can use to minimise the physical effects if they are due to the actual practice. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Fearful asked: What does violent shaking all of the sudden and "shrinking" feeling of the head mean during practice mean? I've been practicing the dharmapalas, and this is happening. What does it mean?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Fearful, Thank you for your question. There could be any number of reasons for this to be occurring. What you can do when this starts to happen is to stop what you are doing, and take deep breaths, and concentrate on your breath. As you concentrate on your breath, this will have a calming effect on both your body and mind, which should stop the involuntary shaking and strange feelings. In fact focusing on the breath is one of the best known methods of developing a focused, concentrated, yet calm Your practice of the Dharmapalas should begin with either Guru Yoga or deity practice, therefore I would suggest that you engage in these practices more before you begin the actually Dharma protector practice. One of the best practices is the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa. This practice is well known for its healing ability on for both the body and the mind. Over time, you should see such occurrences lessen. If this shaking happens regularly and also when you are not practicing, you should consider visiting a qualified health professional just to rule out anything untoward. I hope this helps. Thank you

    John asked: Dear pastors, When reciting mantras we are instructed to visualize the deity. However I realize that my visualization is very very fuzzy and very very ever-changing. It is not a still image, there is like thick clouds moving and blocking the visualization then they would clear and block again and clear again and the deity would even change shape. The round part would be more oval one moment and more circle the next etc. In fact, I don't even know if the picture that ends up appearing in my mind is really looking like the deity or not. What if I end up visualizing a monster without knowing it since it's so fuzzy? Is there danger if that happens? What do you advice me to do?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear John, Thank you for your question. This is a question that people actually ask a lot, but there is no need to worry, especially if we do not have tantric initiation. In fact, the more we practice getting our visualisation stabilised now, the better we will be able to practice tantra when we eventually receive tantric initiation. The issue you are having maintain a steady visualisation is not an uncommon one. This is because we actually have to train our mind to concentrate on what we are doing. One of the major facets of Buddhist meditation is concentration, and this is something we need to develop. We might think that we have a good ability to concentrate, but what the Buddha and the great masters have taught is that we actually do not, but we can obviously develop it. Visualisation itself is a form of concentration meditation, therefore until we achieve a good level of concentration, things like this will happen as we train our minds. What we can do is to focus on a particular aspect of the visualisation, such as the face of the deity, and once that is stable and focused, we can continue onto other parts of the deity’s body, and then the various other aspects of the visualisation. That way, we train ourselves little by little to have a complete visualisation. No in regards to your question about their being danger if something goes wrong or if we make a mistake during our visualisation, this cannot be at our stage of practice. This is because the visualisation is engaged in during the mantra recitation section. Mantras themselves are the Buddhas and enlightened beings in the form of sound. Therefore when we recite mantras we are invoking the holy energies of the Buddhas, which naturally guide and protect us from any harm. The fact that you are facing this issue is in fact a good sign. It shows that are trying to concentrate on the visualisation, but that your mind has not reached a level of concentration powerful enough to maintain the stability of the visualisation. The antidote to this is simple, keep practising. As you continue to practice, you will notice that your visualisation becomes stronger and stronger. If however, you are still worried, you can end your recitation sessions with the prayer dedicated to a Dharma protector to any obstacles, and end with a completion dedication. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Wong asked: Hi, i would like to ask about jhana which is the last factor of the eightfold path. How is it being practised?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Wong, Thank you for your question. The last factor of the eightfold noble path is called jhana in the Pali language. In the Sanskrit language it is called dyana. This is a state of meditative absorption which culminates in the understanding of emptiness and is the pathway that leads us to attain liberation. Generally this state is achieved through the practice of single-pointed concentration meditation. But within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition once you have achieved stabilised single-pointed meditation, you progress onto the path of special insight meditation. It is at this stage, that one is able to concentrate completely on understanding emptiness and therefore attain enlightenment. This topic is somewhat outside of the scope of this section of the blog. However, Pabongkha Rinpoche in his excellent Lam Rim text, titled “Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand” gives a very concise yet thorough introduction to the topic of meditation. Pabongkha Rinpoche addresses the path to enlightenment, not through the eightfold noble path however, but through the six perfections of a bodhisattva. In essence although on the surface the two ways of structuring the path to enlightenment may seem different, they are actually both the same if one analyses them carefully. If you read “Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand” you will understand how the two structures are interlinked if you have an understanding of the eightfold noble path. You can order a copy of the book here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand and the book is also available at Kechara Paradise outlets. Alternatively, you can ask your local book store to order the book in for you if they have that service. I hope this helps. Thank you

    jason asked: i have been practicing higher yoga tantra for over two year now and recently i started to get nightmares for three continuous nights now and i think it will continue, What is happening ? did i do something wrong? The first nightmare was me being cut in to numerous pieces , the second was me being visited by a greyish blue female old female ghost with no eyes in eye sockets, and the third was a giant dark brown black centipede encased in a white translucent sac exploding out of my thigh and crawling/ rolling away in to darkness. Im quite worried that i may have done something wrong even though i think i have not.
    pastor answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. I am glad to hear that you have been practising Higher Yoga Tantra for over two years. You should keep your samaya with your Guru pure and intact, as well as keeping the vows and commitments that you would have taken during the empowerment into the practice. If you do this then you will see a definite transformation of your mind and circumstances for the better, which is after all what Buddhist practice is all about. In regards to your nightmares I do not think that you have done anything wrong per se. In this case it could be due to two possible reasons, the first is that your negative karma is arising in your dreams and the second is that you are being afflicted by a spirit. In the first case, when we practice Higher Yoga Tantra properly and sincerely, it purifies a lot of negative karma. As when engaging in any practice that purifies negative karma, this karma can open and manifest under control situations. For example you the karma manifests are nightmares or scary figures or feelings, rather than physically, which would come about through uncontrollable causes and conditions. When karma is purified it manifests in its most mild form, and for you in this case, it could manifest in the form of nightmares. Therefore if we are engaging in powerful practices, or when we concentrate on these practices, such things can occur. Some people may find this sort of situation bad. But this is not correct, because due to the nature of samsara, we are affected by karma in some form or another. What matters here is that karma is purified so that we can progress on our spiritual journey. When you face such difficulties, the key here is continue with your practice strongly and not give up. In this manner, the karma which causes such situations to occur is purified quicker and then we are no longer affected by it. Therefore you should wholeheartedly engage in primary sadhana of your meditational deity. On the other hand, it could be that you are being affected by a spirit or spirits. In this case there are methods of protection that you can engage in which should be included in your Higher Yoga Tantra practice. If you are unsure of what these could be, please humbly approach your initiating guru for more guidance. Another way that can help solve this problem is to engage in the practice of a Dharma protector such as Dorje Shugden. Since you are already practising a Highest Yoga Tantra, you can ask your guru about the particular Dharma protectors associated with the practice. Each of the major tantric practice has certain Dharma protectors associated with it that aid practitioners to clear obstacles and create conducive conditions for practice. You can actually engage in any Dharma protector practice, but it would be best for you to consult your guru as he or she may assign you a specific Dharma protector to practice. Whatever the case may be, it comes down to karma. The Higher Yoga Tantra you are practising should include a purification practice such as Vajrasattva. For example if you practice the Heruka Chakrasamvara tantra, and have received the appropriate empowerment, you can practice Heruka Vajrasattva. You then concentrate on the practice of Vajrasattva to purify the negative karma causing the situation, and over time you will see the situation get better. If you are not sure of the purification aspect of your daily practice, you can recite the 35 Confessional Buddhas. All of these can help, however I strongly advise you to humbly approach your guru and ask for further advice and instruction, as he or she may assign you other practices or even ask you concentrate on specific sections of the sadhana that they passed to you, to help you overcome these problems. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    kevin asked: hi pastor, I've been very problematic lately and depressed. My plans seem to be always out of place. I read from an article that some problems are caused by negative karma from the previous and present life. I want to know if there is anything that I can do to drain my negative karma. Im very wary now on my actions to others so not to add to my existing karma. Can you suggest a mantra which I can recite and reflect on everyday to help alleviate my problems and drain my negative karma. Thank you very much. Bless you.
    pastor answered: Dear Kevin, Thank you for your question. Yes, according to Buddhist thought everything we go through in life is caused by karma. This can be either good or bad, so difficulties we face in life are indeed due to our karma. Now, one thing about karma that people often forget is that it can be purified. There are many methods within Tibetan Buddhism that are used for the purification of karma. In fact all practices necessarily involve the purification of negative karma and the generation of merit. The most effective of these are known as purification practices, which have the specific benefits of helping us to purify negative karma which leads to all kinds of problems within in our lives. These include Vajrasattva practice, which can be found here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html and the practice of the 35 Confessional Buddhas, which can be found here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html. You can read more about these practices by clicking on the respective links. These are two very powerful methods of purifying negative karma and have been relied upon by countless practitioners and masters to progress on the spiritual path. They are two very extremely effective methods used within Tibetan Buddhism. Since you are going through many problems, however, you can engage in the practice of a Dharma protector who can help alleviate the obstacles you are facing and at the same provide conditions that are suitable for you. One such Dharma protector is Dorje Shugden, you can read more about his practice here, and his daily prayers here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden. The website also has a lot of information about the practice and how it can benefit you in daily life. While it may seem daunting that you have negative karma, you should not be disheartened because negative karma can be overcome by purifying it. What you said is right, you should be wary of creating more negative karma. In fact that is one of the main points a Buddhist lives by, which is not creating more negative karma. People often wonder why Buddhists take vows and precepts, this is actually to stop the accumulation of negative karma. For example a Buddhist takes the vow not to kill, this obviously stops the Buddhist from creating the negative karma of killing because they consciously remember that they should not kill in whatever situation they are in. So it is very good that are checking your actions to make sure that you do not add to the negative karma. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Nepal asked: I've noticed that in Nepal, Shugden and his retinue are forms of the worldly protector Za Rahula, or that's what the lamas and sadhanas say. Wouldn't that make Shugden dangerous or wouldn't that make Manjushri a worldly deity or one that is dangerous?
    pastor answered: Dear Nepal, Thank you for your question. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, that is what the high lamas and masters have taught and explained using Buddhist logic. Dorje Shugden as an enlightened being has been practiced by all major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, and was first practiced within the holy Sakya tradition. Similarly, Manjushri is an enlightened being. In fact all Tibetan Buddhist schools and Vajrayana traditions, including those in Nepal, say that Manjushri is an enlightened being, the Buddha of wisdom. Rahula on the other hand is a worldly deity who was bound by oath to protect Buddhism and Buddhism practitioners. You can read more about him here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dharma-protectors-of-tibetan-buddhism.html#tabs-1. All Tibetan Buddhist schools similarly agree to this point. Therefore to equate Dorje Shugden as a form of Za Rahula would logically mean that Manjushri is not a Buddha. This cannot be since hundreds of thousands of holy masters have relied on Manjushri and gained enlightenment through such beliefs and practices associated with Manjushri. Since from a logical perspective this cannot be the case, and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, it is safe to say that Dorje Shugden is not a form of Za Rahula. You can read more about Dorje Shugden, his history, lineage of practice and benefits here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org. I hope this helps. Thank you.
